All done!! In the middle of planning spring dresses, alterations, and early spring cleaning, I completed two petal valances and two neck roll pillows for a new client in Decatur. It took me about an hour to install the valances this morning. The color scheme matches two beautiful striped slipper chairs accent chairs in shades of chocolate brown, blue, gold and cream.I created the pattern for the valance in Inkscape. They were very simple. It took a little time to get the scale and dimension right, but I think they turned out superb.
This is the first of several drapery projects I'll complete for this client. Fortunately we'll do them over a period of time since the homeowners are bi-city dwellers, splitting their time between Georgia and NYC.
I love my clients...they're the best! Here's feedback from my client sent shortly after I emailed her photos of the valances (FYI - she's still in NYC, her husband was home to supervise the install).
Stay tuned for BR Volume 2.
